The people who choose to live and work in Winnipeg see the bigger picture and know that any challenges experienced are matched and exceeded by the opportunities afforded to us.

We are a community of contrasts: hot and cold, laid-back and passionate, humble yet resilient, hard working people that know how to enjoy their free time.

As the “Culture Cradle of Canada” Winnipeg is overflowing with creativity in all forms, from visual arts to live music to the performing arts. Winnipeg is home to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Manitoba Opera, and many theatre companies including Rainbow Stage and Manitoba Theatre Centre. Recently, the architecturally renowned Museum of Human Rights was opened in Winnipeg, the first national museum outside of Ottawa.

Creativity also expands to our local food scene. Whether you are into breweries, wine bars, small plates, fancy food kiosks, or brick ovens, discovering a new local favourite could easily become a common occurrence.

Winnipeg enjoys world class cuisine and cultural events year round, but is also known for it's fierce loyalty and addictive attitude towards their sports teams. Home to many professional and amateur sports teams including the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Winnipeg Jets, Manitoba Moose, Winnipeg Goldeyes, and most recently, Valour FC, there's a team for everyone to get behind.

Though it's easy getting from one side of the city to the other in a short amount of time, should you want to, it's even easier to escape to numerous lakes, parks and beaches just outside Winnipeg. Camping, fishing, biking, hiking and many other outdoor activities keep Winnipeggers energized in every season.

Because the cost of living in Winnipeg is affordable, there is ample ability to thrive both personally and professionally. Individually, or as a family, the opportunity for growth and success in Winnipeg is unmatched in other markets
